At Rick's Pens & Things I make some of the finest one of a kind writing instruments. Just as no two pieces of wood are identical no two of my pens will ever be identical.
Each pen is individually hand crafted on a wood lathe in my small southern Ontario studio. While most are finished and polished to a high gloss special requests can be accomodated.
Commemorative Pens I will also make special order pens that can be used to mark a wedding, graduation etc. If laser engraving is desired an additional cost of $20 will be applied. I do not do the engraving so this additional fee is to cover my increased costs, no profit is made on engraving. Names, dates etc. can also be added to light coloured wood pens using a decal method for an additional $5. The decal is sealed under a hard durable finish so will not wear off. Samples of pens using decals can be seen here. You may have some wood saved from the family farm or that has other special meaning. I can make a pen for you using this wood. Minimum size would be 3/4" x 3/4" and 6" long. Contact me for more information.
Browse my website and if you see something of interest contact me. All prices shown unclude a $10 fee for shipping and handling via Canada Post within Canada. If you are picking a pen up in person or ordering more than one the price will be adjusted to reflect the actual shipping.
I fully support the Pens for Canadian Peacekeepers Project (Pens For Canadian Peacekeepers). You can view their page or check out my page on Pens for Peacekeepers for more information. Many of the pens I make are sent to our Canadian soldiers and here I have reprinted some of the letters I have received from the soldiers. If you do decide to purchase a pen from me you will also be helping to boost the morale of our Canadian troops.
MILITARY PERSONEL If you received one of my pens through the Pens for Canadian Peacekeepers Project and it has been damaged contact me using the contact button above and I will send you my mailing address. If you then return the pen to me I will repair or replace it at no charge. (You pay for shipping the pen back to me, I will pay to return it to you)
